You guys are being censored here
« on: August 19, 2015, 06:11:14 pm »
There was a thread that started with "The most important thing Bitshares...." has been deleted because it possessed posts that questioned CNX's ability to stay true to Bitshares. I only know this because my last post was a response to a well written post by Empirical1.2. I couldn't find my post or his and decided to search my history where I found the link to the thread here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,17994.0.html
And it has been completely removed.

Hrm......

Are we already being controlled by the new central authority CNX? Or was this a lowly mod, jealous of all the power theymos and Co. have at BTCtalk and /r/bitcoin and wanted some satisfaction too?

I'd like to catch on this thread too, as it looked interesting but I only had time to skim some of the posts. Can someone please re-instate & perhaps explain why is was deleted? Thx

As this topic is on the Meta board, could someone please explain in general exactly who has the ability to delete whole threads (moderators + thread originator)? and perhaps from a moderator's point of view why this would be done in practice - i.e. a whole thread and not, for example, a particular piece of offensive content?

As the OP says, regardless of actual intent, this could be perceived as censorship and surely ought to be a last resort on an open forum.

General is moderated by global mods and admins, there's no board mod. so either one of us deleted the thread by mistake I guess, or we should ask OP if he/she did something. who was the OP?

If I recall correctly bitcoinjesus2.0 may have been OP.  ??

On a separate note, it's probably a good idea for the community to audit all of the mods/admins of the forum, because I doubt anyone has reviewed them in a long time.

Here all all the admins:

bitsapphire
BitSharesDevelopment
boshen1011
bytemaster
cass
cn-members
itnom
logxing
metalallen

And here are all the global mods:

oh admins got an advanced log, that's nice. I think an admin should post a weekly screenshot of this log, for transparency's sake
